How to Check For Armyworms

Armyworms are typically found in the Northern Territory, Queensland, New South Wales and the Australian Capital Territory. However, because armyworms are highly mobile, they can cause an infestation in other Australian regions.

Correctly identifying them is crucial to saving your lawn. A full-blown infestation can damage your yard in one night. By the time you notice, they would have already done extensive damage. Since armyworms do the most damage during nighttime, it can be hard to catch them in action. They work fast, and knowing how to quickly identify can make all the difference between devastation and saving your lawn.

Identify them by following the Soapy Water MethodAnother way to check for the presence of armyworms is the tried and tested soapy water method. To do this, you need to pour a bucket of soapy water in areas of your lawn where you suspect an armyworm infestation is starting. Fill a bucket with 9 litres of water mixed with 50ml dishwashing detergent.

Pour this mixture over an area measuring about one square metre. Monitor this area for about ten to fifteen minutes and watch burrowed caterpillars come to the surface. If you highly suspect an infestation, but no caterpillars come out when applying this method, you can try the following night again.
